WASHINGTON – U.S. President Joe Biden plans to engage with French President Emmanuel Macron soon, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Tuesday.

“We will continue to be in very close contact with our French counterparts” about the possible threat of a Russian invasion into Ukraine, Psaki said.

Macron and Biden had spoken twice in the past week, she said. “I expect he will be engaged with him soon,” she added.

Macron this week became the first leader of a major Western power to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin since Russia massed troops near Ukraine.
